Kindness starts within, how do we treat ourselves in a very moment of time & thus it reflects how we see others. A smile; a word; a gesture of kindness, can do more than we can imagine. A kind heart captivates love & gratitude, it attracts happiness & free us to experience the ecstasy of selflessness.
Start with a note to yourself, no matter how small it is, it matters. A morning wish; to offer the lift; to share a good thought; to make someone smile, everything counts.
